I got this set of curtain rod holders for $2. I will be painting them, but I'm not sure what color yet....it depends on the room I use them in....craft room or spare room.
I couldn't pass this solid wood candlestick up for only fifty cent. It will make a good pedestal for a cheese plate and dome or perhaps a nice wooden bowl. I have several chunky candlesticks I have been saving for various projects...:)
This morning before my son's soccer game, my mama and I went to a yard sale and thrift store in a neighboring town. I am so happy I did. Now....don't laugh or roll your nose like my mama did (she just doesn't see beauty in things like I do) but look at this beauty of a lamp I bought. Actually I bought a pair of them for.....drumroll please............$10!!! I know, I know, you are looking at it thinking this lady has lost it, but they are truly gorgeous and unique lamps! The round part it about the size of a bowling ball and it is glass. They had this ugly reddish brown coating of some sort on them, but it scratched off easily, so I took one apart and ran it under hot water to see what happened and the stuff literally just peeled off in big pieces.
I also had to have this pretty little crystal clock to put on my nightstand. I have been looking for one and it was only $2.29!
